Did You Know?
John Quincy Adams regularly swam in the Potomac River. A journalist, Anne Royall, knew of his 5 a.m. swims. After being refused interviews many times, she went to the river, gathered his clothes and sat on them until she had her interview. Before this, no female had interviewed a president.
